    Citizen Army Training (CAT) for Highschool

    Education changes CAT course

    IF the Department of Education were to declare the latest fashion trend, fatigue and combat boots would be out while school and physical education uniforms would be in as it changed the Citizens Army Training course in high school into Citizenship Advancement Training.

    The new course “aims to enhance the students’ social responsibility and commitment to the development of their communities and develop their ability to uphold the law and order,” the education office said.

    Besides military orientation, the course will also teach community service and public safety and law-enforcement service.

    Under military orientation, students will be taught the concept of good citizenship, patriotism, loyalty, basic military concepts and basic drills.

    Community service requires students to participate in community projects including health and sanitation, beautification and waste management. They will also be taught to assist victims of child abuse, campaign against pornography and even safeguard the elections.

    Under public safety, students will be taught crime prevention, disaster preparedness and first aid.

    While the course is mandatory among all fourth year high-school students, they will only receive a “pass” or “fail” grade based on periodical tests, quizzes, participation and projects and will have to complete the 35-hour course.

    The education office also decided to discontinue the Cadet Officers Training Course and Cadet Officers Candidate Course, which used to be the springboard of students aspiring to become officers.

    It prohibited tactical inspections, presentation of sponsors and CAT graduation rites, which used to serve as milking cows of some CAT officials.
    Members of Boy and Girl Scouts, aliens and members of families of diplomatic corps are exempted from taking the course.

    Lam nyo,

    Sa totoo lang... kahit nung HS pa ako, hindi talaga healthy tingin ko sa CAT/ROTC na yan. Sana nga gawin nilang mas productive.

    Like target shooting
    Jungle warfare
    Basic Life Support
    etc.

    Hindi yung ibibilad lang mga estudyante sa araw o kaya pamartsa martsa lang. Di ba mga "Reserve" yan? Kapag nagkagera, active duty agad... so ano gagawin ng mga iyan? Magmamartsa at tatapakan mga tangke ng kalaban?

    Sayang na sayang sa oras.
